sunday postcard art : time



The theme at sunday postcard art is "time" the perfect opportunity to use the new Ink and the dog clock stamps from Paperartsy (I absolutely love that cog stamp- which is also available as a mini). The paper is also paperartsy, from the rum and raisin pack (yes I know they are supposed to be for christmas, but there are plenty of scrummy papers in the pack which are suitable for non christmas too.)

The clock is painted with a layer of rock candy distress paint, which I ran over with blue ink once it had crackled, The edge of the paper is coloured with black soot distress ink. I have finished the piece with some ribbon and a gem.
